Nutmeg - Whole

SKU: 12761

There's a famous American cooking personality who claims to always, ALWAYS, have a whole nutmeg in his pocket, just waiting for him to add a shave or grate to any dish that appears. Ask him, and he will produce it on demand! Use nutmeg even a little, and you will understand. It's wonderful zested over roasted veggies, or on your oatmeal or fruit!


This nutty, slightly sweet spice adds a delightful flavor to both sweet and savory dishes. It's the quintessential fall spice, an essential player in "pumpkin spice" everything, and in baked goods. It's the secret ingredient in Alfredo sauce, insisted upon by chef Alfredo Bellinghieri Conti.


Nutmeg is the seed of several species of the genus Myristica. Myristica fragrans is a dark-leaved evergreen tree cultivated for two spices derived from its fruit: nutmeg, from its seed, and mace, from the seed covering. Kept whole, it last almost indefinitely, withstanding even the treatment of rattling around in a chef's pocket!
